Subject: all time favs ...
This show (and the first ever Scarlet/Fire) are among my all time favs ... Sugaree, Mingle, PeggyO, Cassidy and NFA. I think this IS my favorite Scarlet┬╗Fire. Everyone (including Donna & Keith) really seem on top of it ... Regarding ┬╗
(Both songs had been played before separately, but this is the first time they were played as a medley). I know of no time before this when Fire was played - alone or as part of a medley. That statement seems total rubbish to me. The 1976 "Happiness is Drumming" has always sounded to me like the first time Fire was played - but only as an "still-under-development" instrumental jam.

By the way, this version - the first version - of Fire was a three verse/chorus version, but (as far as I know) every subsequent version of Fire
(until 14Sep1978 in Gizah) was a two verse/chorus version ... I've not heard any three verse/chorus versions between 18Mar1977 & 16Sep1978 anyway ...
The 14Sep1978 Fire introduced the second verse as we know and love it ... maybe a bit a trivia there ...

Thanks for posting this patched version.

Thank you, Scott, for the patch! I am continually amazed by the DEADication of the contributors to this resource.

Subject: Thx so much!!
This fixes a serious flaw in what I think is the "gold standard" FOTM, and the transition from SB to FOTM - WOW!!! With all that is going on "internally" here, with Phil getting Jerry back on track (on guitar, his voice is oh-so-good during this whole show) with SB, etc. Nuff said...

This fix is just stellar - THX SO MUCH!!

Subject: Scarlet>Fire Patch
I've been comparing the 2 versions. The patch certainly does a good job in fixing one of the most painful gaps I've ever heard in a Dead show.
I just wish there was some way to clean up the sound quality so the transition sounds more seamless.

Either way, the scarlet>fire is a gem.

Subject: The First Scarlet/Fire
According to The Setlist Program

this is the first ever Scarlet/Fire. (Both songs had been played before separately, but this is the first time they were played as a medley).

Subject: only copy with patch
for scarlet->fire connoisseurs, this version fixes the cut in the previous versions
Reviewer: buscameby - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - November 27, 2008
Subject: the first time
If my research is correct this is the first Scarlett/Fire!

And it seems to be the only board.
